Lions have a setback with 2 back-to-back losses in the last two matches and their batting unit has failed to cross the 250-run mark. Ryan Rickelton is having a superb season this year with 415 runs so far. Nicky Van Den Burgh, Wihan Lubbe, and Delano Potgieter have scored around 250 runs and will look to continue their good work. Reeza Hendricks and Dominic Hendricks have come up with small cameos to build partnerships. Eldred Hawkins and Malusi Siboto will share the new ball and will need to provide early breakthroughs for the team. They have a strong spin contingent with skipper Aaron Phangiso, Bjorn Fortuin, and Wihan Lubbe in their playing XI.
Ryan Rickelton – Rickelton is having a silent time in the last 4 matches with a high score of just 32 runs after scoring nearly 300+ runs in the first 4 matches. He will look to regain his touch and put more runs on board in this match.
Aaron Phangiso – Phangiso has 16 wickets at an economy of 4.7 RPO and is pressurizing the batsmen in middle overs with his disciplined line and lengths.

Bloemfontain has a bright and sunny weather on the match day with just 20% chances of rain. We expect rain won’t play a big role in this match.
Manguang Oval is one of lively pitches where we can expect the ball to seam and swing around. Batsmen will find run scoring bit tough here. Teams were bowled out for less than 250 runs thrice in four innings till now. We can expect average scores in range of 230-240 runs here.
Chasing teams have better win-loss record in this tournament so far and both teams will look to chase down the total here.
Knights have the form and momentum on their side with two wins in the last two matches while Lions are struggling after a good start to the season.
Knights will also have home conditions to their advantage on this pitch. Lions have a solid playing XI while Knights are high on confidence after chasing down totals in the last few matches. We expect knights to continue their momentum with a win in this match.
Knights will win the match!
